Return to Tigertown

One of the top in-state running backs in the class of 2014 visited Clemson for the home finale against Wake Forest.

RB Caleb Kinlaw Profile

Goose Creek sophomore running back Caleb Kinlaw hadn't visited Clemson since his older brother, Rodney Kinlaw, went through the recruiting process almost a decade ago.

The younger Kinlaw recently spoke with CUTigers.com> about his most recent trip to Clemson.

"It was good. I really didn't get around all that much because we got up there late. But the little that I saw, I liked," he said.

After the game, Kinlaw met up with his recruiter of record, running backs coach Tony Elliott.

"I talked to him a little bit. He showed me around the locker room," Kinlaw said.

What stood out?

"The fans. The whole area was orange. I like the down-home feeling they had. It's kind of rural, not in a city, by itself."

The class of 2014 prospect has visited Virginia Tech and South Carolina this season. He talked about those two campuses, too.

Virginia Tech: I like Virginia Tech. They're setup and Clemson's are pretty similar. It's a down-home feel.

South Carolina: It's more in the city. That's kind of a down a little bit for me, but I still like the area.

Kinlaw will head back to Columbia this weekend for the Clemson/South Carolina game.

Heading into last week's playoff game against Northwestern, he'd rushed 135 times for 1,097 yards and 11 touchdowns.
